While it certainly beats reading the ingredients list on a bottle of shampoo, doctors really don’t recommend bringing your smartphone along while you use the toilet.

All of that app scrolling and game playing only encourages people to spend more time hunched over while sitting, which can lead to hemorrhoids, Dr. Sarah Jarvis tells The Sun.

But if you keep your phone with you while atop the throne, you’re not alone. According to a YouGov survey of Brits, 57 percent admit to phone use in the can, while eight percent claim they “always” do it.

 

Are you so attached to your phone that it comes with you even in there?
